The British and Irish Lions defeated South Africa 22-17 in a tense first Test in Cape Town.
The tourists trailed for most of the match but finished the game stronger and can now clinch the series with a victory in the second Test next Saturday.
Here’s how the Lions players rated at the Cape Town Stadium:
